A few tapes with a magnet on the side at saw , drill press are enough for me, and a pencil behind the ear .
I where something quite often that I am sure none of your other readers would not wear, knee pads. I've done hardwood floors for 33 years and it's just natural for me to where them. I prefer the leather ones and in fact find them so comfortable that many a time after a 12 or 14 hour day have come home with them on without realizing it. She will just roll her eyes at me and shake her head. I'll say "What?" She'll say "Your knee pads again." I'll just say "Oh." and take them off. As far as in my shop goes, you just never know when I'll have to get down on the floor for something and at my age it makes life a little softer.
